Report a Student Absence

If your child is absent or tardy, please CLICK HERE to report.

Thank You!



 All tardy students and early dismissals will be handled in the Attendance Office located immediately inside LHA’s main entrance.

 Early Dismissal :

 If a student must leave school before 1:45 p.m. follow this procedure:

  1.  Parent /Guardian:  Write a note for student’s dismissal.   Include the student's full name, dismissal time*, the reason for early dismissal, and a daytime phone number for verification.  If someone other than the person listed as the Emergency Contact is picking up the student include that information in the note. Every person must present an identification before the student is released.  The parent or person picking up the student should come to the attendance office where the official sign out will be handled.   
  2. If the early dismissal is for a doctor’s appointment, the student should bring the doctor’s note to the Attendance Office the following day or when they return to school on the same day. The Attendance Office will mark the student appropriately in Power School.
  3. The close of our school day is busy.  Please do not request an early dismissal after 1:45 pm.

 *allow at least five minutes for travel time from classroom

 Following these procedures will save you time and help to minimize disruption to instruction.  Scheduling appointments before or after school is best.  In the rare case this cannot be done, we will call your child out of class.

 Please NO dismissals after 1:45 pm
